Milk and Cookies

Yesterday I posted a picture of the Cookie Monster cookies I made for my niece’s 2nd birthday party. The theme of the party was actually “milk and cookies” and so I also made favors for the adults who came to her party. Taking inspiration from the adorable invitations that were sent out, I made the #2 look like a chocolate chip cookie inside baby pink circles. It was the first cookie I made with two cookies (circle and milk bottle) blended together and I have to say it came out pretty good. These cookies were HUGE and took some time to make but they were absolutely adorable. Adorable for my adorable niece’s birthday :)

Happy Birthday sweetie girl.

Auntie Kendra loves you so much!!

 

It’s All In The Icing

We’ve all baked cookies. I’ve been baking cookies since I was a little girl. ¬†Snickerdoodles, chocolate chip, oatmeal, and of course the most deceptive of them all…the sugar cookie. “Deceptive” you ask? Yes. The sugar cookie. It seems so plain, so easy, so¬†transparent… so transformable. Oh yes, the sugar cookie can be molded into anything the creativity of the mind can imagine.

But what makes the sugar cookie a step above the others…icing. It’s aaalllllll in the icing. And the key to a really good, no GREAT, icing? Consistency. Always start with a thick thick thick icing and water it down to the right consistency for what you are piping. Check out some pictures of my thick icing…my whisk wouldn’t move if I left it in the bowl standing straight up. It’s a product of 10 minutes of whipping!
